Prince William County Government received a AAA bond rating for the 10th consecutive year and is one of only 48 counties nationwide to hold the highest rating from the three major bond credit rating agencies, include Fitch Ratings, Moody's Investors Service, and S&P Global Ratings.
“Our county’s AAA bond rating is the highest available and it is an essential in our department’s ongoing work to attract and retain businesses,” said Christina Winn, Prince William County Department of Economic Development Executive Director. “Any opportunity to showcase not only the stability of our government, but also our business-friendly climate, is an asset to our economic growth strategy.”
The triple-AAA status reflects the financial strength and sound fiscal management practices of the county.
“The County’s bond rating is the most significant indicator of how well we are managing the financial position of the County while implementing policies that support the local community," said Ann B. Wheeler, Prince William Board of County Supervisors Chair At-Large.
“These ratings reflect the Board’s unwavering commitment to the county’s principles of sound financial management and are a testament to the strong practices in place at the County and the many economic development successes over the past few years,” said Michelle Attreed, Chief Financial Officer, Prince William County.
